All-terrain vehicles have grown in popularity in Florida over the past several years. They provide excitement and a fun outdoor recreational activity for both residents and tourists alike. Despite their smaller size, however, ATVs can be involved in very serious collisions and can cause life-altering injuries.

ATV Injuries In Florida
Four-wheeler accidents have been increasing in Florida. Many of these accidents have involved the Yamaha Rhino that has been the subject of several class-action lawsuits. Riders have been injured after this particular model has flipped and rolled because of its high center of gravity. If you were injured on a Yamaha Rhino, we will aggressively pursue compensation for the injuries you sustained. While the Yamaha Rhino receives a great deal of attention, many side by sides share the high center of gravity that makes the Rhino so dangerous.
Other ATV accidents might occur due to the negligent operation by a driver. Driving too fast – especially on rough terrain – can cause serious crashes, rollover accidents or passenger ejections. These accidents can result in injuries such as:
- Broken bones
- Brain injuries and head trauma
- Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
- Nerve damage
- Severe lacerations
Of course, ATV injuries can vary in severity and include many injuries not included here. Unfortunately, carelessness or reckless behavior on ATVs can even result in the death of a loved one. If you lost a family member in an ATV accident, our skilled attorneys will carefully listen to your situation and help you file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party.
